2nd jacket – done!

My second big knitting project is done!

When the knitting bug hit me last fall, I actually wanted to knit a BROWN jacket… thinking that I want something to compliment this dress:

Admittedly, this dress NEEDS something.  (also admittedly, the camera’s setting is all screwed up and I did not fix that…) When I was wearing the dress, I most often wrapped a colorful scarf around my neck or had loud tights on. It is very comfortable and nicely tailored… but a bit drab. Where I got the idea that a BROWN jacket would spice it up, I don’t remember anymore. Which is why I ended up buying green/blue yarn for my first project (picture here). That jacket did not work over the dress –  it is too long and bulky.

So off to the the yarn store I went again, still thinking about my dress project. The yarn I got is a Merino/Llama/Bamboo mix which does not itch (very important!). I was taking the pattern off a picture that I had seen and fit it to a cotton jacket I own. (see my Ravelry notes)

Now I feel like a lady of the fifties… this combination can pass as retro!

Here is the true color. Me and my camera in a better mood! 🙂
